CIRENAS offers 1-3 week-long short courses for middle school, high school, college, graduate and adult participants.
CIRENAS is building a new campus and will relaunch the semester program January 2016.
The Caletas-Ario National Wildlife Refuge is in jeopardy due to environmental degradation, illegal fishing, fires and turtle egg poaching.
Students and researchers join efforts with local stakeholders in order to conduct action research projects focused on the creation of a more sustainable future.
Homestays, service learning, stakeholder meetings and working together towards common goals help students and stakeholders make life changing connections.
“Necessity is the mother of invention” and our off the grid campus surrounded by an imperiled wildlife refuge inspires action, adjustments and ideas.
